instill the kind of fear president obama talked about today. trying to make people think, oh, my god, they're coming for my gun. and what happens is a lot of americans buy more of the guns and more ammunition, so it spirals on. why can't you see the plane analogy that you brought up as the perfect example of what you should be doing, which is dealing with the chicken and not all the eggs? the chicken is the gun. the gun situation in america, to many people, seems increasingly ridiculous, where a young, deranged man could very easily access an ar-15 assault weapon and take a magazine with 100 bullets and commit mass murder. the last four shootings in america have involved that specific weapon. and have led to complete carnage. it's that that people want to remove. it's not regular guns, handguns, or pistols. what is your answer for that. >> first of all, guns are p prohibited in the airplane. they're also prohibited in the school. what we've got to make sure is somebody who violates the law, that children are still protected. that's why we have federal air marshals on airplanes and th

have what we call a historians dinner and talk to president obama. they're off the record, but i think it's fair to say he likes talking about presidential history and likes hearing about abraham lincoln. he's from illinois and really cares about lincoln. he's aware of lincoln's famous second inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for wh

numbers, raising money, supporting the president barack obama. had a chance to talk to eva longoria on the red carpet saying this is the passion. this is their moment. they feel very empowered. and one of the highlights of the program itself, this was a special moment. this was coming out at the same time singing together. they have never done that at any occasion in their careers and two greats singing "hello dolly" and "old friends" and surprise guest, of course, piers, vptd. we knew he was coming. many of the people there who participated he was not on the program, they did not know. he stood up. he talked a little bit and made a joke about 2016. a lot of folks wondering if he will run in 2016. his son bo biden, he was here saying about 50 of the family members who were here. certainly a lot of people in that audience, piers, perhaps thought he was making a play for the next four years, piers. >> i bet. i'm just surprised the president himself wasn't there to sing a bit of al green with smoky robinson. suzanne, thank you very much. coming up, a rare appearance, my exclusive intervie

real action in his second term. >> this is barack obama at his best. relaxed, speaking in aspirational tones. you ni uniting the country talking about what we can do together. this is a moment of celebration. he's reelected and will not have to run for any other election in his life must make a difference in terms of how he speaks to the country. >> the latino vote for him has never been more important. how significant is that going to be in his second term? >> my hope is it will be very significant. i think it will be. he has a real connection with the community. we saw that with over 70% vote for obama. >> it's the first time until a very long time you've had three back to back presidents all doing two terms. does that bring a certain stability to the administration of the united states? >> i think it does. there are a lot of reports that have been jimmed up in agriculture and commerce and interior. he can start using executive orders to do new things on new type of farming procedure or monument. he koun do that in tcouldn't dot time. takes a while to adjust living in the white house

those races. six of those candidates lost. they spent more money i think on defeating barack obama because he was going to erase the second amendment from the constitution than they've ever spent to defeat anybody before, yet there he was today at the white house behind the podium talking about reasonable common sense gun laws. >> i thought the nra's advertisement lambasting the president for the security around his children was particularly offensive and a new low even by the leadership of that organization standards today. >> you know, we talked to nra members and we talked to gun deal. >> and we poll them. the truth is the average nra member has not been very happy with the performance that they've been seeing out of the nra's washington lobbyists lately. nra members are people who hunt, who want to defend themselves and who want to be left alone, like much of the country. the nra's washington leadership lives and breathes for an entirely different purpose these days. they're selling guns and they're raising money and they're trying to elect republicans to congress that is the b
